Total: 1 hour 5 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • cupsall-purpose flour,spoon & leveled
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ½cupunsalted butter,(1 stick) softened to room temperature
  • ½cuppacked dark brown sugar
  • ¼cupgranulated sugar
  • 1large egg
  • ¾cupcreamy peanut butter
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract
  • 24dove chocolate hearts
  • ¼cupgranulated sugar,optional, additional for rolling

Instructions

  1. Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.

  2. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat the butter for about 1 minute on high speed until creamy.

  3. On medium-high speed, beat in brown sugar and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes until completely creamed and smooth. Add the egg and beat on high for about 1 minute until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

  4. Add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, then beat on high until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined.

  5. Cover and chill the dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator (and up to 1 day). If chilling for longer than a few hours, though, allow to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before rolling and baking because the dough will be quite hard and the cookies may not spread much.

  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

  7. Scoop and roll cookie dough, about 1 tablespoon of dough each. Roll each ball in the additional granulated sugar (optional) and arrange on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

  8. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the tops begin to slightly crack. Remove cookies from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.

  9. Press a chocolate heart into each cookie and allow to cool completely.
